The UK Telegraph has an interesting article stating that a number of factors in 2008 has brought about the "turning point in the great worldwide panic over man-made global warming."

  1. "...temperatures have been dropping in a way wholly unpredicted by all those computer models which have been used as the main drivers of the scare."
  2. "in the Manhattan Declaration last March, hundreds of proper scientists, including many of the world's most eminent climate experts, have been rallying to pour scorn on that "consensus" which was only a politically engineered artefact, based on ever more blatantly manipulated data and computer models programmed to produce no more than convenient fictions. "
  3. "...this month's Poznan conference, when 10,000 politicians, officials and "environmentalists" gathered to plan next year's "son of Kyoto" treaty in Copenhagen, panicking politicians are waking up to the fact that the world can no longer afford all those quixotic schemes for "combating climate change" with which they were so happy to indulge themselves in more comfortable times.
